Daisy and Sophie IV by Loonaki Daisy and Sophie IV by Loonaki
I sewed new dresses for my dolls. Finally. I got fabric samples with different flower patterns and I thought I'd put some to use. I also made shoes for the first time. They're not that great, but at least I tried. haha

Read about my dolls here:

SophieOkay this journal will tell you everything you need to know about my selfmade doll, Sophie:

Inspiration and Start
I always loved dolls, of all kind. Then I discovered BJDs and thought they were so beautiful. I always wanted to have one, but couldn't afford it. The biggest impact on my wish to create a doll, though, was the wonderful, amazing doll-artist Marina Bychkova (~Marina-B). I've been to one of her solo exhibitions at Strychnin Gallery Berlin a few years ago, and probably lost my soul to her beautiful dolls. And so it started. I planned, then forgot about making dolls, then planned again. Last winter, I finally made a very simple, small doll from polymer clay. And then, in spring, I made the decision to just start a more advanced doll. Since I've never done that before and I was afraid of fucking it up, I HEAVILY referenced the look of the body parts from Marina Bychkova's dolls. I hope she doesn't mind... Anyway, our joint work is entirely different,
Daisy
Daisy is my second self-made doll (I don't really count my very first attempts here, haha).  
My first one was Sophie http://fav.me/d570qbl.
When making Sophie, I didn't take as many photos of the progress, which is why I wrote out everything about her making http://fav.me/d570qff.  
This time however, I took photos of about everything. So I will show you how I made my dolls in pictures. The process was about the same for both dolls, I only changed the design. And this time I solved the "hair-problem" right from the start... by using Barbie hair. xD

Omg I know right? It really feels like seeing them grow up, sort of. It's weird.

You'd be my prettiest doll, tho! (Ohhhh am I sweet today, or what?!)
